The Amazing People Of Kashmir

Artisans in the world of machines

Artisans in the world of machines

A group of Aari artisans live in Noorbagh where they work and craft skilled pieces of brilliance. The group is headed by Manzoor Saheb, a 62-year-old gentleman, whose workshop is right at his residence. At his workshop, one can find artisans from various genres of Kashmiri art working at various floors. In a world taken over by machines, Manzoor Sahib and his group of artisans handcraft every Aari embroidery, resulting in a piece that is full of evergreen charm and grandiose. The handmade product has its own charm, as it lasts longer and its threads do not come out as they are secured into knots manually by the artisan.
